Fairtrade Fortnight 2017
27th February — 12th March
It's time to put Fairtrade in your break!
2017 sees the 23rd Fairtrade Fortnight in the UK. It will be also one of the most uncertain years for a generation when it comes to trade. It is more crucial than ever that the voices of farmers and workers are heard — to combat the risk of undoing the progress of the last two decades. We need to speak up on their behalf more loudly than ever.
Low prices paid to farmers can mean:
Fairtrade exists to change this. This year during Fairtrade Fortnight (27th of February to 12th March) we are encouraged to create as many breaks as possible for people in our communities. Whether it's over a tea or coffee give them a moment in their busy day to stop and reflect on whether they are feeding exploitation or not and take action. Tell real stories about farmers and workers in poor countries who produce the food and drink that make our breaks so enjoyable. Take the message beyond your network to the general public. This is our fourth fair trade fortnight channel challenge.
